Hi Mim

Unfortunately it is not down to individual PCT's to decide on the number of embryo's to be transferred! It is the HFEA's rule that ALL NHS hospitals are ruled by!!! Most private clinics can still put more than one back, but they too are all in the process of making this a rule and by 2012 most pivate clinics will oly be able to put one back too!

I am at a private clinic and I am having 2 back (if i get that many)!! Previously I was at a NHS hospital who would have only put 1 back!!

Check out the HFEA's website! It explains all the rules for different aged women and why they have them!

It is ridiculous if you ask me, as although having 2 put back doesn't double your chance, it does increase your chance of a pregnancy! Like you say, surely we should be the ones to decide if we will risk a multiple pregnany and the risks that come with it!! I think it has a lot to do with the economy as well as the risks to be honest! This is what came accross when I had a councelling meeting with a woman who was telling me about why they have this rule!!

Best of luck with your tx

It is a real difficult one. It's an argument I think will go on forever between patients, clinics and the Hfea.
Some clinics will transfer 2 if it's done at day 2 or 3 where as if they transfer a Blast they will only transfer one.
As for ivf funding some people are really insensitive when it come to if it should be funded or not. Take a look at the debate on this mornings website if it's still on there it was there debate on Friday!! So glad I didn't actually see it I would be screaming at the tv!!
Good luck Hun.

I am going to fight this one embryo transfer as I said I know I will not fall pregnant naturally and Two will be blessing and in fact the statistics show no difference on twin pregnancy from singletons I looked it if you take one twin pregnancy and compare to two singleton pregnancies there is no much difference, it has nothing to do with them worrying about the mom and baby it is all about saving costs and lower population. I read on this morning the story as the video was nowhere to be found it disgusted me that people look at infertility and ivf as a lifestyle and quick fix and apparently infertility is no big problem how ignorant are these people, all I can say about this type of people is wish they walk in our infertile shoes for a day.

OK, I'm in a quandry. We've filled in the form for when we hopefully get to e/c and it asks would you like 1, 2 or 3 embryos put back in. I didn't realise you could have 3 put back in, perhaps that is down to my age?! We'd already decided we would got for the, what we thought, maximum of 2 and accepted the risks. Even knowing we can have 3 put in we still thought 2 would be best as triplets would scare me silly. BUT, at the clinic today one of the other women was saying no put all 3 in 'cause even though she had 3 put back only 1 took. I'm not in a completely confuddled mess. If they were all to take I'm not sure how I'd cope...... the risks are high enough with 2 for me and the babies, surely 3 is madness? But then if it increases my chance of just getting 1 baby then is it worth the risk?

It will depend on the number and quality of your embryos. They may say you can only have 2 put back. If you are older, nearing 40 and you made a few eggs and only 3 embryos you would have more chance of it working. Also you need to look at your past history, what's the likelihood of all 3 implanting, etc. They will advise you nearer the time and you will have to balance the positives and negatives of your options and then decide.

How many embroys to transfer

Hi All,



We are currently going through our first IVF attempt and the clinic are strongly suggesting single embryo transfer. They are talking about the high risk factors associated with multiple births.

We just really want to give things the best chance and before we got to this stage had decided if we are lucky enough to be in the position we would like to transfer 2 embryos, all the advice from the clinic seems to be against this.



I am just wondering what everyone else's experiences of this are, has anyone taken their clinics advice and only had one transfer and had a BFP, or should we stick to our original thoughts and try for a double transfer?

thanks ladies

Hi Pip

On our very first cycle we only had 1 embryo transferred on the advice of our clinic and we got a BFP (unfortunately I miscarriage) we then had 2 embroys on our 2nd & 3rd cycles one resulted in a BFP which I again miscarried.

As it is your first cycle I would stick with 1 as per your clinic - remember its not necessarily about quantity but quality. You have to go with whatever you feel is best for you :)

Wish you all the very best with your journey.

I felt as you did for years and then what the clinics warn of happened to me.

Because of that, and to be fair I guess my experience makes me biased, I'd suggest single transfer, especially if you get to blastocyst stage - if you're left with two on day two or three, then I'd go for two back.

There is a website called one at a time which gives more info on single vs double transfers.

Good luck!

Hi Pip, I agree with everything everyone has said above. Especially the bit about it depending on the quality of embryos you end up with being able to choose from.
Also your age is a factor too, if you are under 35 then usually 1 is the safest option as your chance of success is higher than if you were over 35.

GOOD LUCK!!! blowkiss

Hi Pip,

If u get more than one free NHS attempt then maybe sensible to opt for single embryo transfer first cycle...

Lots of luck whatever you decide, it is a very personal decision xx
